the candidates from 2012 trying their hands again? rick santorum, rick perry, both said to be thinking about it according to politico. weigh in on that. >> i think rick santorum will almost certainly run. he had a pretty good showing last time. he did well in the early states. he acquitted himself well in the debates. he's particularly popular with social conservatives but also working class republicans. i think santorum is definitely a likely candidate. rick perry obviously flamed out, didn't do so well. not so sure there's a second try for rick perry. >> richard, i want to talk about chris christie with you. there was that quinnipiac poll, 89% in it said his response was excellent or good. the internal poll, they're even better than 89%. is he the future of the gop? >> he has to get through his re-election first. we've seen this before to a certain extent. props to governor christie for doing what he did and, frankly, for rising above poll 0 particulars and saying that the president did a good job. but we saw this once before. remember when charlie crist, the former governor of florida, ph
's no way that a santorum could have done it. >> that is preposterous. i don't know santorum -- it's hard to say, right? but i do know that we see successful conservative governors changing the landscape of how their states operate. we have scott walker in wisconsin who beat back multimillion dollar push by the unions to survive that recall. we have john kasich in ohio who's had his ups and downs, but that state is humming along really well. megyn: what about the social issues? >> they didn't come into play. megyn: they're zeroing in on. >> those social issues did not come into play except to the democrats' advantage. why? because they could define mitt romney as a part of the war on women because why? mitt romney never really made the affirmative case to women. when was mitt romney making the case to female small business owners? where was mitt romney talking about the fact that the faith-based community has done more to lift women up from poverty and dejection and difficulty than any community i believe in the united states, including the mormon faith which has done more to help people
't have won last night. rick santorum wouldn't have won last night. here is where the problem comes in. the republics need a conservative with charisma. and it's got to be the kind of candidate who is smart enough to explain to these groups like women, latinos, young voters, and they have to stop this bible-based bashing of gay people. they have to bring these people in without, without seeing out their conservative principles. >> bill: that's of the hard part because young single women in order to get them in the tent many of them you have got to throw the abortion issue out the wind doe. that's a core fundamental belief you can't do. >> that's the problem. any time -- you are absolutely right. absolutely. abortion should be thrown out the window, not as an issue but, you could still be pro-life and say, hey, this is not one of the things i'm going to be talking about during the campaign. you don't sell out your pro-life principles but you don't make abortion a big issue because there are too many women out there who say, you know, there is war on women. i mean, this -- they concocted
home, governor. and people like gingrich and santorum were warning about that last year. it's always easy to look back and hindsight is 2020. a lot of them were concerned that a more establishment type like mitt romney would not do that type of aggressive messaging on conservative issues that, for instance, won in 2010. and that have been so successful in various governors races as well. >> two things i want to mention. first, i do want to say i think mitt romney gave it his very best. he worked hard, he worked his heart out. i have got no criticisms of mitt romney. if anybody would want to criticize mitt romney. he was my opponent four years ago when we both ran. you know, i can probably find a way to do it. i'm not going to. i worked hard for him because he was the nominee. i think that's what we do as republicans. once we get a nominee. we close in the ranks and we help him. >> he also learned from campaigns that failed. he didn't get as many of the mormon vote as john mccain did, governor. i mean -- >> -- i don't understand that. >> laura: we're beyond kind of niceties at this po
, and contributor and former communications direct or to senator rick santorum, robert trainham. let's talk twinkies. just kidding. i just have that on my mind. i want to talk about the party, beth, and you spent a long time before coming to washington in florida. let's talk about marco rubio's role. we'll talk about bobby jindal but marco rubio just happened to go to iowa. what a great guy. this is someone who has national aspirations clearly. from your close read on him, is he someone who can make that leap? he went from the state legislature to the u.s. senate seamlessly. going from senate to presidential candidate is another. does he have it in him? >> if you watch marco rubio speak, not necessarily the speech in iowa -- >> this is what you would expect a republican to say. >> but the convention speech where he's giving it the full treatment, i mean, there are very few politicians that can do what he can do which is make an audience feel something. he can really connect. he's really everything that mitt romney was not able to do. >> i totally agree and i think you wind up in some ways fight the
things, rick santorum saying whatever he said about blah people. so the party was saying this about black people, about brown people, self-deportation, these sort of things. when they're saying it about barack obama, black people and brown people read it as about themselves, that barack obama is not american enough, he's lazy, playing too much golf. >> john? >> the point i was going to jump off something toure said about president george w. bush. i remember during that campaign every day on the front page of the newspaper there was a picture of george bush hugging a black child, usually a very beautiful black child every day. and it got to the point where it was like what's he communicating? and the communication was, remember, his whole campaign was about compassionate conservatism. >> thank you so much. >>> next, say it ain't so, allen west throws in the towel and the comedy gods are very sad. stay with us. >> let's be very honest and let's put it in some military vernacular. if you're feeding a person a crap sandwich with a smile, it's still a crap sandwich and i think that's what you
. rick santorum, a former pennsylvania senator, writes -- today."n "usa as for another republican voice, marco rubio. this is a store in "politico" this morning. -- a story. there's a little of what the senator had to say. [video clip] >> we start with a very simple motion. a way to turn our economy around is not by making rich people poor. it's by making poor people richer. that's the way to move our country forward. [cheers and applause] and it starts with economic growth. what can government do to the federal level to get the economy growing again? look to your governor in iowa. how about balancing the budget and dealing with your? so you don't have one? [applause] how about tax rates that generate the revenue government needs but are not so unpredictable or high that people are afraid to invest in your economy moving forward? how about the regulatory process that takes into account the costs of regulation and not just theoretical benefits of regulation? an investment in energy policy, not just energy politics? host: watched the whole speech at our website c-span.org. this year is th
, moderates versus conservatives? >> i thought to mention rick santorum. we talked about, most of them are actually more -- and also given where the current debate is this morning, are more in the moderate portion of the party. and they will be coming forward in various ways saying i have the answer to this question which is the hispanic question. also it's the question with women. how to reach out to those voters and speak to them in an effective way. >> it's going to be a determination of what counts as moderate in the republican party. if it means something that's more accommodationist on immigration, it's not going to be something that's dramatically more accommodationist on taxes. but it might be something a million or above. on fiscal issues the republican party is not going to abandon moorings, pro-life definition. it simply can't. no nominee i can see in the foreseeable future is going to either. those things will have to be merged in a way that a post-reagan, post-bush and a new definition of the party. one of the things that held mitt romney back, he did not take an it. we lo
, newt gingrich and rick santorum that gave a lot of ammunition to the obama team when they went after mr. romney's time at bain capital and the obama team kept that theme going. >> they won, the president won and should be congratulated and the team should be congratulated because they put together a strategy and tactics that won a race that was very difficult to win but i think they're going to be governing and presiding over an incredibly divided country and unless they figure out a way to unify that and deal with that it's going to be very difficult. >> i got to bring this question to george will. correct me if i'm wrong, george. right after president obama was elected four years ago, went to your house, didn't he, for a dinner party reaching out to conservatives, that was supposed to be the promise of his first term, a person who could heal the division in this country. clearly though he's been re-elected not all that healing has happened. what went wrong in that relation between the president and who is to blame and how much on each side. >> books are already being written about wha
. the guys in iowa, rick santorum, the folks in south carolina who gave the primary to newt gingrich. beyond that, i feel -- ever since george of the bush's second term, there has been an anti-establishment reaction within the republican party. they were embarrassed and angry with the bush administration. conservatism turned out to not be what they wanted. they wanted small government conservatism. i think everybody loves to many people into the tea party caldron. but you get the tides that are determined to come here and do something against leadership -- you get the types that are determined to come here and do something against leadership. in ohio, he mentioned he likes the trappings of office, if you will. he mentioned to me, how much leadership can you exert? how much control can you exert over your own conference? given the freshmen. and he said to be, it is not the freshmen. he said it is some of the older members. he did not say who. i would have preferred if he did. that is those who are trying to have perfect scores on these ratings. they are the problem. because anti- leadership i
. you can't tell me that rick santorum or newt gingrich, as much as i like them, would have donnie better. okay? romney was always i'm a redskins fan, a washington redskins fan. he is like donovan mcnabb. he is not the quartback of the future. rg3 is, right? i think it's the same way with the republicans. mitt romneying, they were hoping he could get them a win, but he was never the candidate of the future, and i think that if you look at not just marco rubio, but bobby jindahl, and i would have said chris christie two weeks ago, but today i probably won't. there are strong candidates out there, young republicans, who can appeal to a much wider audience and be inspiring and inspirational. >> i want to bring you into the conversation here. first of all, let's just lay out what things have looked like for the last eight years, and president bush in covering him, he really did a lot of outreach with the hispanic -- 31% latino vote, and mitt romney 27%. that was compared to president obama's 71% here, so matt talks about marco rubio and some of the others in the party. is that the way
. as soon as it won the nomination, i think it was one rick santorum dropped out, they decided to focus on discipline. they thought any topic that was not on obama are the economy was not worth a dollar spent. is spent entirely until just before the convention on banging on the economy and the obama. to a certain extent, we have an incumbent president running for re-election, it is a referendum on the incumbent. it is a referendum on the economy. but the thing about it is, you have got to define your own candidate in a way and a positive way biographical advertising and testimonial advertising. you need to make them a real, three-dimensional, trustworthy individual. think of the boy scouts. that is a general idea. that is a general thing you want to get across. you need to apply that to your candidate in order to protect them from the slime that is coming. in the romney campaign, they adamantly chose not to do that. the obama campaign, give credit where credit is due, they saw their opponent was undefined. i sat with some focus groups. other than a romney was a republican nominee for pr
with rick santorum for supremacy in that realm. rand paul, perhaps. the tea party was found by the ron and rand paul real conservatives, the guys who were disgusted at how george w. bush spent money before it devolved into people blaming obama for what bush did. then you'll have the moderates. i think jeb bush will be the leader in. guy who will say i'm the electable moderate. we tried going to the right wing way. ronald reagan wouldn't fit in with them. chris christie of course will be a part of that camp. >> immigration is going to be a real good test case. you'll see this divide between that brand of moderate republicans saying that immigration is an economic issue. that we need to bring in people with the skills that america needs to power the economy and on the other side, folks like steve king and michele bachmann who use those emotional appeals of they'll take your jobs, they're from another country and so on and so forth. how that plays out will be key to what the party becomes. >> john: you can't wi
% of voters in the republican iowa caucuses identified themselves as evangelicals and supported rick santorum over mitt romney. many uneasy over romney's moderate pass on abortion and his mormon faith. >> i think it concerns anybody who considers them an evangelical christian. >> reporter: that was then. you previously said the romney campaign, not social conservatives -- >> i think he's proved himself he has tried to make that outreach to social conservatives as well as economic conservatives. he's done a good job here in iowa. >> reporter: well, iowa's evangelical voters seem to be moving into mitt romney's camp here in traditional democratic dubuque the president may face more of a challenge. the catholic voters are split over issues like abortion, funding for contraception and the government's role in providing for the poor. >> the life issues which many catholics, most catholics hold dear and central to their faith, but then there's this belief that remains that the democratic party somehow cares for the poor better. i think it comes down to that tension. >> reporter: how big a role does
mcconnell, the leaders reverses the guys outside the beltway. the guys in iowa, rick santorum, the folks in south carolina who gave the primary to newt gingrich. beyond that, i feel -- ever since george of the bush's second term, there has been an anti-establishment reaction within the republican party. they were embarrassed and angry with the bush administration. conservatism turned out to not be what they wanted. they wanted small government conservatism. i think everybody loves to many people into the tea party caldron. but you get the types that are determined to come here and do something against leadership. in ohio, he mentioned he likes the trappings of office, if you will. he mentioned to me, how much leadership can you exert? how much control can you exert over your own conference? given the freshmen. and he said to be, it is not the freshmen. he said it is some of the older members. he did not say who. i would have preferred if he did. that is those who are trying to have perfect scores on these ratings. they are the problem. because anti-leadership is good for them. and it is
, would it have been better to have gingrich or santorum or perry or bachmann? who was the alternative at least this time around? who was it? >> i personally would say jon huntsman would have had the best chance. he couldn't get through the primary process. >> because they couldn't see his values. >> also, they started their campaign off doing something you probably shouldn't do, kicking your own party around. >> are you forgetting the hermanator? >> as richard said, the primary process rewards extremes in many cases. so how could a guy like -- let's say jeb bush, this is just for argument's sake, 2016, how does he get through a primary process given his stances on things like immigration? can jeb bush survive that process? >> jeb bush can survive it, chris christie can survive it. it's just what i say on immigration reform. you don't go half in. you don't stick your toe in the water and then have a blogger write something nasty about you, then pull it back. you keep going in and you crush the blogger and you keep moving. and if somebody that's an extremist on talk radio attacks you, y
anybody who mitt romney was. as soon as it won the nomination, i think it was one rick santorum dropped out, they decided to focus on discipline. they thought any topic that was not on obama are the economy was not worth a dollar spent. is spent entirely until just before the convention on banging on the economy and the obama. to a certain extent, we have an incumbent president running for re-election, it is a referendum on the incumbent. it is a referendum on the economy. but the thing about it is, you have got to define your own candidate in a way and a positive way biographical advertising and testimonial advertising. you need to make them a real, three-dimensional, trustworthy individual. think of the boy scouts. that is a general idea. that is a general thing you want to get across. you need to apply that to your candidate in order to protect them from the slime that is coming. in the romney campaign, they adamantly chose not to do that. the obama campaign, give credit where credit is due, they saw their opponent was undefined. i sat with some focus groups. other than a romney was
mitt romney was finally chosen. somewhere between herman cain and rick santorum. in retrospect, it is striking me as a type of ridiculousness. >> i think for the issues around sexual orientation, we have the last four years of the current president where these issues have already become almost regular issues in american households because the president and his administration were doing things that actually highlighted areas and our concerns from everything from domestic don't tell, even if people were thinking weren't thinking about gender identity, all of a sudden, this becomes, you know, commonplace to hear something about things like that or even a little bit about the issue of hate crimes and legislation back to the beginning of the administration. let's not forget that the president comes out personally and supports the freedom to marry for same-sex couples just a few months back. so for us, it makes sense but it's there. what's interesting about it is that the words were never spoken. there were a lot of discussions around it. are you upset that, you know, the word gay or
in iowa who handed the iowa caucuses to rick santorum. folks in south carolina to get a primary to newt gingrich. >> i don't mean it at all -- [inaudible] not general elections. >> beyond that though, i feel like the last couple, ever since george w. bush's second term there's been an antiestablishment reaction within the republican party. they were embarrassed, angry at the bush administration. they want small government conservatism. so you get more and more, for lack of a better term, tea party ties but i think everybody lumps too many people into the tea party, sort of coulter and. but you get these types who are determined to come here and do something against leadership. i sat down with john boehner on sunday on a bus going come in ohio, rural ohio. like to sit there and watch the road as you go over bonds and whatnot. he likes the fact a lot of sirens around. but he mentioned that he liked the traffic, if you will. he mentioned this to me. i said, you know, how much leadership can you exert? how much control can you exert over your own conference? and given the freshman. he said
